Morning Minute: NAR urges Congress to approve commercial use of drones

Allowing the commercial use of unmanned aircraft systems (UASs), or drones as they are commonly called, is of growing interest to the real estate industry, said National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) President Chris Polychron in recent testimony before the U.S. House Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet. Read NAR’s news release on Polychron’s testimony and see an excerpt below:

“Commercial use of unmanned aircraft systems, or UASs, has the potential to create new jobs and businesses specializing in their uses. NAR and its members are excited about these possibilities but also understand the need to balance them with protecting the privacy and safety of citizens and other users of the country’s National Air Space. As end-users of drone technology, Realtors® want clear regulation that permits the commercial application of UASs in a way that is affordable to users and safe for their communities, both on the ground and in the air.” — NAR President Chris Polychron
